i. [Borrowed from Chapter 9, problem 2] Use the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution to show that the most probable speed of a molecule at a particular temperature is given by the expression:

`v_(mp)=\sqrt((2k_(B)T)/(m))`

Be sure to show your work and explain your steps. (3 parts, 10 pts possible): i. [Borrowed from Chapter 9, problem 2] Use the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution to show that the most probable speed of a molecule at a particular temperature is given by the expression:
